it's an ez and safe question but with a loooooong answer!
go to http://www.bt.etree.org -then click "help" or go to http://audiohub.org/bt/bt101.htm

It explains it all. The whuts and howz. Btw, I've use utorrent 1.5 -works best for me.

I avoided torrents for a long time cause of the perceived hassle, but it wern't too hard, just have to pick a new active torrent with plenty of leeches coming in to feed.
And also, be sure to seed out at least as much as you leeched--share.

yeah but it seems to tie up my connection forever ( figured it out this weekend ). I think I'm just going to stick with the MP3>wave and just not trade.Everything else just take too LONG. I have crap for luck trading anyway because the HQ SBD CD's I have most people seem to already have anyway. I had KILLER copies of the 69 Fillmore run then low and behold they release it. There are others too. For the meantime I'm LOVING the archive! Finally ditched my dial up connection and external burner that only worked 10% of the time. I'm lovin it! The only bad news is I turned my girlfriend on so now we'll have to compete for download time : )

One last thing - if anyone doesn't have 7-29-88 ( I only had it on cassette before this weekend ) GET IT! Great show and probably one of the best AUD's I've ever heard.

Look, don't give up on bittorrent. I heard about it some time ago, but it "seemed" like too much of a hassle. But then i said (to myself), let's see what all the fuss is about. This was literally around two weeks ago. And since then, i've added some really choice shows to my collection via etree & lossless legs (not to mention some real killer AUD shows from this very fine archive, most recently 1981-03-09, Madison Square Garden).

So, i guess what i'm saying, give it more than the old college try. You say you've got the high-speed connection ... so, unless you're working with some old hardware, it should serve you well enough to torrent. And as Rastamon says, be sure to share back by seeding your downloads.
